    Stefan, I have had this one for a while so not sure if it is the same one.

    By the way a fantastic series of hats from you! I am the road so haven't checked the FL much.

    That is interesting. Thank you for your reply. I will say I'm a bit surprised you like it better than the 100. Good information. I just found a 100 in my size, and am considering it. Thanks again buddy.

    Happy Memorial Day to all the United States forum members. I tip my brim to my grandfather, uncles, aunts, father, and brothers for their efforts to secure freedom and security to all of us thru their sacrifices in WWII, Korea, Haiti, Serbia, Desert Storm, Iraq War and all other assignments. I visited our local veteran cemetery very early morning with family to offer tribute to my family who is buried their and give a nod to all the other family who has served. God speed and god bless!

    Out for an early morning dog walk in an Akubra Camp Draft in bluegrass. Rain did not deter this hat from its duties.

    The Akubra went to dry out on a block after its dog walk duties.

    Mid-day I headed out for a hike to have some quiet reflective time. Steady rain had me wearing a Gannon fedora (granite hued beaver and charcoal trimmings). I visited the prairie fields that I assisted in performing a controlled burn 2 weeks ago.

    Rain and warmer weather has the fields looking sharp. Field grasses and wild flowers are thriving. Our local fauna, foxes, deer beer and birds were the living things I got to see during my hike. I did happen across a couple of wildlife dinner remains on my hike.

    The modern beaver felt (Winchester felt), IMO, is a perfect choice in hat for the steady soaking rain. Pics show the hat as thoroughly soaked, but no moisture can be felt thru to the liner or inside.

    The leather sweat still is going strong and not soaked after several hours in the rain. Home now, I have the hat on a wooden block drying. When it gets nearly dry, later this evening, I can blast it with some steam if the felt needs some shaping and to brush the nap into its original features. I will use a bit of leather conditioner on the sweat band before letting it dry and then store.

    Posting on the Fedora Lounge reminds me of all things vintage. On this steady rainy
    60'f afternoon, I wore nothing vintage. I did this with deliberate choice. Repellent hiking pants, grand waterproof hiking boots, rain jacket, modern accessories and a modern fedora steaded me well in the inclement weather.

    Cheers folks on Memorial Day 2019.

    Nice hat, Fruno! I see you too are a member of the Hanover Square club. I am starting to feel left out.

    Oh no!

    I don't believe the original utilitarian reason for the Stetson was to hide your sunburn from peers. It's main purpose was to hide your noggin from the sun and any other menace.

    Go to Walmart and buy the ugliest paper straw they have, then say 5 hail Mary's.

  13. Yep ... something like $95 originally. This one showed up in a box, but the tan one was from another warehouse and came in an envelope -- it didn't fare as well.

    I bought a bleached and a tan/natural myself. For the price, how could you not?

    I really enjoy my balcony. A cup of coffee or Chinese tea, sunrise or sunset!
